Padcast: Jason McAteer on the importance of Suarez in the Rodgers Revolution

by Josh Powell | November 8, 2012

LOST WITHOUT YOU: Liverpool would be bottom of the league if it wasn’t for Suarez

Listen here |

After 10 games in charge in his first season Brendan Rodgers has 11 points. At the same stage in their first respective seasons, Kenny Dalglish had 18, Roy Hodgson had 12 and Rafa Benitez had 12. Is it squeaky bum time on Merseyside?

Anfield legend Jason McAteer thinks Rodgers just needs time. The former Liverpool midfield joins the lads on the Padcast to talk about how Rodgers is revolutionising the reds with the style of football he is playing and the youth he is bringing through the squad. We talk about Liverpool’s chances ahead of the big clash with Chelsea on Sunday and McAteer tells us how important Luis Suarez is and how the issue of only having one fit striker has to be addressed in January – possibly with Theo Walcott or David Villa?

Suarez has either scored or assisted 80 per cent of Liverpool’s goals this season and without him the reds would sit bottom of the Premier League. McAteer gives us his insight on what makes Suarez a Kop hero.

We also have some more bananas stories from around the world from Barry Lenihan and the New Kids On The Blog give us a whopping 14/1 Premier League four-fold.
